Creativity abounds in Kennett Square! This past fall Tara Dugan, owner of vintage home goods boutique Scout & Annie, opened worKS Kennett Square! “I created worKS to deliver a new shopping experience to Kennett Square, both in terms of location and concept. Shoppers will discover authentic, handcrafted, curated and high quality goods, proudly presented by some of the region’s top makers and dealers,” says Dugan.
The concept store, located in a restored 1950’s garage a few blocks away from The Creamery (a beer garden that opened this summer), features a curated group of artisans and retailers who offer handmade, vintage and one-of-a-kind goods. Dugan says, “The artisans and makers who call worKS home are part of a larger community of Philadelphia area makers and dealers whose products stand above the rest. I had worked with many in the past, and was anxious to have them in the dealer mix at worKS. Their different specialties are what makes worKS special, and their collaborations are fantastic!”
